Data cores

Core Metrics are used to calculate additional metrics, set for monthly collection, and pre-configured by AcceleratorApp. The Core Metrics are disabled by default, you can always reach out to your customer service representative if you want to enable it. They will be stored in your startup portfolio and in each startup file. The core metrics and data are classified into 5 categories:

  • Cash allocation
  • Customer/User
  • Employees
  • Sales
  • Financing

Note: If you don’t consider the data relevant for your analysis, you can toggle off those metrics.

Immediately after categorizing the business model, we proceed to collect the relevant data.

From the data dashboard, in the assignation column, you will find out what data is collected from startups according to their type of business model, based on the following logic and definition:
